Indigenous peoples participate in multiscale processes that shape policy changes affecting global commons. In this talk, we will explore how do indigenous peoples of the Amazon Basin have occupied the political space created by climate change negotiations and policies during the last decade. Have indigenous peoples succeeded to gain recognition and to negotiate a better access to resources and services? Are they calling into question institutional arrangements that govern the environmental transformation of tropical forests? This talk aims to explore some of the new directions of indigenous social movements of South America, including normative global orders as a key level of analysis and focusing on the way this political realm articulates the relationship between the "human" and "the environment."
